29 September 2017 – Through a memo circulated last week, it appears as though Santander has extended their deadline for CARS certification to November 1, 2017 from its prior deadline of October 1st. The memo states that a formal notice of this is pending from Santander themselves. Included in the memo is a request to identify agencies who have refused to comply the certification mandate for the purposes of identifying gaps in coverage.

As the repossession industry continues to experience downward price pressure and continuous unreasonable demands from lenders and forwarders, we are saddened by the closing of yet another repossession agency. Below is a recent post made by the owner of one such agency.

I got in this business when I was 21 years old and was getting paid MORE per repo, fuel was .88 cents a gallon insurance wasn’t even ten thousand per year and a brand new rollback was $52k. Trucks are now $100k fuel is 2$ @ a gallon, insurance is $60k and repo fees are down and now they have stripped us of any way to earn.

Our initial editorial titled “Santander Demands CARS Certification – The Contingent Fee Contradiction” we addressed the issue of Santander/Chrysler demanding that all of their approximate 700 agencies be CARS Certified. Despite our extreme efforts to distance any blame on RISC, CARS or Joe Taylor, Stamatis Ferrolis or Mark Lacek, all of their editorial responses focused solely upon their defense. It seems like either they all miss the point or perhaps they agree with us and just can’t say it?
